's where the obama administration's on the defensive about libya. but i think the entire obama team and the vice president are going to get a lot feistier here. i mean, the president made a decision not to get in romney's face a little bit more, stop him, disagree with him. he didn't bring up the 47%. he had a whole, you know, area to discuss the role of government, and he didn't talk about a philosophical divide. i think they are now going to go become a lot more aggressive because they see an aggressive challenger and it's not enough to do rope-a-dope and sit back and try to sit on a lead. so i think there's going to be a different thought process that goes on. >> zpsavannah, were you surpris we didn't hear the number 47? >> i was. as a matter of fact, an obama adviser told me earl yes today we're not going to play it safe, don't believe those stories we're playing not to lose. but i think that's what we saw the president doing. the other thing he needs to do is really it's the unfinished business of this campaign, is tell the american people what the unfinished business of this p
be in the second administration of obama, and i think at the end of the day when they, no matter what the liberal media prints, all of them do these polls of independent voters, and i suspect independent voters have a much advantager, favorable opinion of mitt romney tomorrow morning than they did at dinner time tonight. neil: were you surprised that private capital of which, you know, staples clearly was a beneficiary, and bain capital, did not become the big theme that many thought it would tonight? >> well, again, i think this is -- i jim lehrer did a great b scripting this, keeping people on message -- neil: you think he did a great job? i love jim lehrer, but it got out of control. it was me like wrestling my kids. >> he tried. president obama asked about education, was talking about libya and oil and taxes and welfare and all in one sentence from time to time, but i think he did as good as a job as he could keeping it on message. mitt did not let president obama get away with his lies. point by point, he called him on the lies, and, again, because i think if you look at the polls, neil, the
at lower cost better quality, i believe in competition. >> obama: first of all every study has shown that medicare has lower administrative costs than private insurance does. and private insurance has to make a profit. nothing wrong with that. that's what they do. so you have hire administrative costs, plus profit on top of that, and if you are going to save any money through what governor romney is proposing, what has to happen is that the money has to come from somewhere, and when you move to a voucher system you are cutting seniors at the mercy of those insurance companies, and over time if traditional medicare had decayed or fallen apart then they are stuck. this is the reason why aarp has said that your plan would weaken medicare substantially, and that's why they were supportive of the approach that he we took. one last point. we do have to lower the cost of health care -- >> we'll talk about that in a minute. >> obama: not just in medicare but overall -- >> romney: that's a big topic. >> yeah i want to get it to but before we leave your comment -- >>
